♔In Autumn’s Golden Glow- John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893)

In Autumn’s Golden Glow by John Atkinson Grimshaw
(1836-1893)

The sense of mystery evoked by the appearance of the lonely road is further enhanced by the anonymity of the scene with the exact location withheld.

The Victorians had a huge appetite for such romantic intrigue and it was a prevalent theme in the novels, plays and poetry of the age. Grimshaw himself was inspired by the writings of Wordsworth, Browning, Shelley and in particular Tennyson.
